The website and brochure project a modern, comfortable, luxurious spa-like atmosphere. WRONG!!! It is more like a 60s motor inn that they tried to renovate and then ran out of money half way through. We went for 3 days for relaxation and to go to Hearst Castle. We had the King Suite (normally $300/night) we luckily had a AAA discount... More

I recently took my family to the Orchid Inn in San Simeon to explore Hearst Castle and the surrounding area. The Orchid Inn provided an excellent base to do this from. The entrance to Hearst Castle is just 3-5 minutes away, and Cambria is just under 10 minutes going the other direction. From Hwy. 46 nearby, you can go inland... More

I booked two nights at the Orchid Inn based on reviews on this site and the motel's own site.Yes, the rooms look as they do on the inn's web site, but that's not the whole story. The sign outside the motel (the place doesn't qualify as an "inn") made some reference to a "spa atmosphere." I think you can get... More

I stayed at the Orchid Inn Traveler. The service was superb. I checked in around 2:am and was greeted by the host, check-in took about 2 minutes. The wicker breakfast baskets were generously filled with fresh muffins, breads, juice, yogurts, and cereals. The room was impeccably clean. I had a gas fireplace in the room that came on with the...

This property could be very nice, but there are significant problems. The accommodations are not at all consistent with the TripAdvisor rating. The property has a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere, the décor is nice, and our room was generously sized with nice bedding. There is easy beach access. However, there were many very annoying problems that indicate a total disregard... More

We eloped on a Thursday and began driving North from Los Angeles on Friday for an impromptu honeymoon - no advance reservations! A friend had mentioned the location, and it was our best hotel experience out of 3 we stayed in. From the moment I called to inquire about accomodations from the road, to our final arrival, the service was... More

I always have trouble finding a place to stay as I want it to be nice. I stay at places with three stars and above. I booked the orchid inn though the hotel directly. I got a price of 170.00. We arrived and Shirley checked us in. She was very nice and let us choose between two rooms. We choose... More

Staying at the Orchid Inn at San Simeon is the single worst hotel experience I have ever had. I have traveled extensively both domestically and abroad and have never encountered such rudeness from hotel staff. First let me be clear: I have stayed in San Simeon on two prior occasions and know what to expect from the area. I had... More

Where do I start with this hotel............ Firstly I can categorically say this is the first time I have been misled by Tripadvisor. This hotel is absolutely awful. My girlfriend and I decided last week to have a weekend break up to Hearst Castle. We looked on Trip Advisor and saw the Orchid Inn was voted #1 in San Simeon.... More
